    Version from [testing] already uses Mesa 7.2, have you tried it?

    Hmm, maybe I should try it soon..
    BTW, the GL version reported by glxinfo is 1.3 right?

    I've been following this problem recently since I got stung by a problem with the xorg-x11-drv-ati drivers recently, on Fedora 9 with XServer 1.5.2... The simplest way to put it is that the system simply hangs (doesn't quite freeze, but is utterly unresponsive). I've submitted a bug report to Red Hat's bugzilla, and there seems to be other set of problems derived from these last updates to XServer 1.5 and the 6.8 and 6.9 versions of the driver:

    Bug 464383
    Bug 462157

    Any thoughts? Currently the system is unstable as nitroglycerin in a blender, any type of image that is larger than the size of the window containing it (i.e having to pan to see it) will trigger this resource race.

    Sounds like the OSS drivers have their own issues to sort right now :/
    Also, the GL version is at 1.3, right?

    Yes it does show that on the R500 based X1200 (RS690M) GPU in my laptop. I was kind of surprised that 3D actually works, and rather well so... Well, there are some rendering issues (horizontal black lines where I suspect should be some texture filtering going on, or so I think).
